A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice: GUINEA PIG ALL THE THINGS

You guys. Imagine the scene. I'm at Volumes Book Cafe with a group of writers from Book Riot. I turn the corner. And I see a picture of a guinea pig dressed up like Elizabeth Bennet.

This guinea pig.

You know how sometimes, something strikes you as unspeakably hilarious that perhaps confuses those around you? Every new page I saw in A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice had me doubled over in paroxysms of laughter while my fellow Book Rioters stood there, staring at me. BUT I DID NOT CARE because guinea pigs were wearing bonnets.

ahahahahaha they're guinea pigs

Bloomsbury, who publishes this, has done an A+ job on promotions. Mainly because they have a tumblr for it and also made a very very serious trailer:




Guinea pigs wearing bonnets is my new favorite thing. Guinea pigs being said to emote at all is hilarious because they are the Bartleby of rodents, and if they could say anything it would most assuredly be "I would prefer not to." Because they very clearly just want to sit there and do nothing. Which is why you can put bonnets on them.

This guinea pig book is displayed cover out on my bookshelf, because how can you not. Bloomsbury has an Oliver Twist coming out soon which omg I am so excited about I cannot even. Let this series continue forever.

I leave you with this:

How to Build a Girl Introductory Post, which is full of wonderful things you probably want to read

Acclaimed (in England mostly) lady Caitlin Moran has a novel coming out. A NOVEL. Where before she has primarily stuck to essays. Curious as we obviously were about this, I and a group of bloggers are having a READALONG of said novel, probably rife with spoilers (maybe they don't really matter for this book, though, so you should totally still read my posts). This is all hosted/cared for/lovingly nursed to health by Emily at As the Crowe Flies (and Reads) because she has a lovely fancy job at an actual bookshop ( Odyssey Books , where you can in fact pre-order this book and then feel delightful about yourself for helping an independent store). Emily and I have negotiated the wonders of Sri Lankan cuisine and wandered the Javits Center together. Would that I could drink with her more often than I have. I feel like we could get to this point, Emily INTRODUCTION-wise (I might've tipped back a little something this evening, thus the constant asides), I am Alice. I enjoy

Harry Potter 2013 Readalong Signup Post of Amazingness and Jollity

Okay, people. Here it is. Where you sign up to read the entire Harry Potter series (or to reminisce fondly), starting January 2013, assuming we all survive the Mayan apocalypse. I don't think I'm even going to get to Tina and Bette's reunion on The L Word until after Christmas, so here's hopin'. You guys know how this works. Sign up if you want to. If you're new to the blog, know that we are mostly not going to take this seriously. And when we do take it seriously, it's going to be all Monty Python quotes when we disagree on something like the other person's opinion on Draco Malfoy. So be prepared for your parents being likened to hamsters. If you want to write lengthy, heartfelt essays, that is SWELL. But this is maybe not the readalong for you. It's gonna be more posts with this sort of thing: We're starting Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone January 4th. Posts will be on Fridays. The first post will be some sort of hilar

Book Blogger Hop, Pt II

All right. The question for this week is:  "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?" Oh-ho my. I have an issue with book commitment. I start a new book, and it's exciting and fresh, and I get really jazzed about it, and then 20% of the way through, almost without fail, I start getting bored and want to start another book. I once had seven books going at the same time, because I kept getting bored and starting new ones. It's a sickness. Right now I'm being pretty good and working on The Monk , Northanger Abbey , Kissing the Witch , and I'm about to start Waiting for the Barbarians since my friend lent it to me. But The Monk and NA are basically books I only read when I'm at work, so I don't see it so much as working on four books, as having books in different locales. Yes. This entry wasn't as good as some of the others, but I shall rally on the morrow. Yes I shall.
